Join a "Poterowend" event to practise your Luxembourgish speaking skills in "real life"
Similar to the idea of language cafés or as they are known in French, “cafés des langues”, where people who speak different languages get together and sit around language-themed tables to practise speaking a particular language, the Théâtre National du Luxembourg (TNL) is organizing and hosting a series of events that they have labelled “Poterowend” ( literally, chatting evening) where people get together to practise speaking Luxembourgish in particular.
The first of these events took place on September 19, 2019 and was so successful that we now have several more dates, namely on:
October 23, 2019
November 28, 2019
January 14, 2020
February 14, 2020
March 10, 2020
April 30, 2020
May 12, 2020
Luxembourgers and non-Luxembourgers are welcome to join these events in the relaxed atmosphere of the TNL. The aim is to spend a nice evening together, meet new people and discover Luxembourg's local cultural scene.
Being able to speak a little bit of Luxembourgish already is a plus but it is not necessary. If you’re just curious to see what it’s like and maybe meet some of the teachers that teach our Skype classes, or talk to some of our students, come along even if you don’t know a single Luxembourgish word yet. It won’t take long before you’re introducing yourself in Luxembourgish!
Everyone is free to talk about any topic of choice but each evening will also run under a specific theme so that you’re not running out of material to talk about and to keep conversations varied and interesting.
Whether you are a newcomer to Luxembourg, an expat, a foreigner, frontalier, immigrant, temporary or long-term resident, or a new citizen, joining a “Poterowend” is a great opportunity to widen your social network in Luxembourg, improve your Luxembourgish speaking skills, get to know some local actors and directors and go on a tour of Luxembourg’s national theatre.
Usually, Learn Luxembourgish is focused around virtual education through Skype and online courses, but lately, we have been feeling like getting a little more personal. It’s a great opportunity for our students to meet some of their fellow classmates and teachers and tutors in “real life” outside of our Skype lessons. And sometimes, nothing beats a good face-to-face conversation to improve your fluency!
“Poterowend” events are organized and hosted by TNL (Théâtre National du Luxembourg), with the support of Learn Luxembourgish.
No need to register - just show up in the foyer from 7pm on, grab a seat and introduce yourself. The bar is open, of course!
The event address is:
Théâtre National du Luxembourg - TNL
194, route de Longwy in Luxembourg City
